|1 day 10 hours ago||It's a matter of record||
It's a matter of record that I was a strong supporter of Brady Hoke for a long time, even when things were going wrong.
My concernand and respect for him turned to disdain when he stood on the sidelines with his arms folded, while Shane Morris was hurt and stumbling around on the field.
All his talk about "caring for those kids" seems like a bunch of baloney ever since then.

Surf & turf. Let's get both coaches!

I was fortunate to meet Gordie Howe after a Red Wings game at Olympia stadium, probably around 1959. My uncle worked there. He was wearing a suit and tie, and a dark trench coat. He talked to us for a while, and he seemed...dignified. To me, it was like talking with the President of the United States.
God bless Gordie Howe and his family.

While Rick Neuheisal was a disappointment for UCLA, he is still fairly well regarded in Southern California. Not a lot of chaos or drama, he just didn't do such a good coaching job. Somewhat like Brady Hoke.
Jim Mora came to UCLA and started winning right away.
Anyway, if Rick thinks Jim Harbaugh should come to Ann Arbor, I'm not going to argue with him, that's for sure.
|1 week 4 hours ago||The main thing||
The main thing is to absolutely STOP any helmet to helmet contact.
Incidental, accidental, incremental...doesn't matter. No excuses. No exceptions. No helmet ever touches any part of another helmet.
It's not the only thing, but it's the main thing. Then they can pretty much let them play tough football.
|1 week 5 hours ago||One step closer||
Or so it would seem.
|1 week 17 hours ago||Ridiculous||
|1 week 19 hours ago||If Narduzzi can||
If Narduzzi can expand his skill set, he possibly could do well.
If he does a mirror-image of what Rich Rodriguez did at Michigan and only plays one side of the football game, he'll be back to being a DC pretty quickly.
Please note: I don't dislike RR. Good for him he learned from his mistakes. Except it came at our expense.
|1 week 19 hours ago||It's way too early||
It 's way too early for such speculation.
For now, let's just enjoy the speculating and guessing and grasping at straws whether JH will ever coach here at all.
|1 week 20 hours ago||Reefer||
That's right kids. Don't trip out. Time to watch "Reefer Madness".
|1 week 20 hours ago||It will be interesting||
It will be interesting to see what happens when he tries to get his offense to "play angry".
Offense and defense demand different mindsets.
|1 week 20 hours ago||Now I know why you are a fugitive||
Your link triggered "Exploit Rogue Scanner (1733)" on my anti-virus. And I sure didn't click on the damned plug-in they demanded.
|1 week 20 hours ago||It's only money||
Interesting aphorism: It's only money.
|1 week 21 hours ago||Whether our coach is Jim Harbaugh||
or if our coach is Jim Harbaugh, I expect he'll evaluate Nussmeier and make the right decision.
I'm actually more in favor of retaining Roy Manning, as linebacker coach, than anyone else.
I appreciate that Greg Mattison has done a lot of good for this team, but I think his best times are past.
|1 week 1 day ago||I've got no plans...||
except to celebrate when Jim Harbaugh becomes our coach.

Get well soon.
|1 week 1 day ago||Consider this, Jim.||
The NFL will always be there. This opportunity, such perfect timing and confluence of events, most likely will never come again.
|1 week 3 days ago||Props to you||
Props to you Brian, for maintaining composure and a sense of perspective, when many others are disingenuous and fabricate fake news.
|2 weeks 19 hours ago||Let us strive||
Let us strive to maintain a sense of decorum and a modicum of decency in this time of turmoil.
Or perhaps we should all just flip out and start writing complete gibberish:

There, that was cathartic!

Is there some kind of soap or something that can remove this image from my neural patterns?
|2 weeks 19 hours ago||How about a version of a Josh Groban song?||
Or maybe not.
|2 weeks 19 hours ago||Embarrassing||
|2 weeks 19 hours ago||Go Fitz!||
You used to juke 'em out of their shoes, Fitz. You can do it again.
|2 weeks 22 hours ago||Excellent video||
Great message. Thanks for posting.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Higher academic standards||
Higher academic standards didn't prevent Michigan from football success in the past.
It won't stop us from success in the future.
Poor coaching has taken us down. A great coach can put us on top again.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Most 18 year old athletes||
Most 18 year old athletes think they are tougher than titanium and will live forever.
They are ready to be challenged, and the best coaches aren't afraid to do that.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||A significant number of players||
A significant number of players left the football program when they had to contend with Bo Schembechler's high standards.
That turned out okay.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Gotcha covered on the over.||
|2 weeks 4 days ago||All in all||
All in all, a pretty reasonable summary of events. Point number 4, that JH hasn't yet decided what he's going to do, is something I've been saying all along.
As long as JUB remembers that he's a reporter, or even say "investigative journalist", I repect and enjoy his writing. When he tries to predict the future or promote his agenda, he can lose perspective just like anyone else.
Fortunately, we here in Harbaughland, err, MGoBlog, never lose perspective.
